Imagine slicing that first, big, beautiful bunch of celery from the earth in your garden. You can harvest individual stalks when just 6" tall or wait for the bunch to mature. Celery grows best in climates with long, mild-temperature seasons, but with a few helpful tips, it can be grown almost anywhere.

Dunk celery in ice water and drain before storing to reduce field heat. If celery is bitter, refrigeration for 2 to 3 days will reduce bitterness.

Worth the effort .

I've grown this variety for some time now & start in greenhouse but is SUPER fragile to transplant. I gave a couple of first time growers starters of this celery and theirs didn't make it. Mine is looking very happy & healthy but not for the timid gardener.

Its growing fantastically in my hydroponics buckets

Ive decided to dabble in hydroponics and thought I'd give celery a go as it doesn't do thst well in the ground for me. It is growing like weeds in the kratky buckets. Ive at least 10 going and ive already started teasing outer stalks off for cooking and the flavor puts store bought to shame. The other commenter is right they are delicate babies I left mine in the nursery trays far longer than my other plants just to give them a head start. But I have only lots one baby due to my cat enjoying it more than me. Lol. She eats almost anything she can get her fangs into. I can highly recommend.

Started these seeds indoors and really babied them with extra time and consistent moisture for success. I made it a priority to keep their soil moist as I read they natively grow in swampy areas. I added some balanced vegetable food at transplant into raised bed and some coffee grounds around the base a couple times. Harvest was 170 days after starting the seeds. Despite a little bug damage they look great and are very crunchy and tasty! So far stalks have gone in soup, stew and juice. Will definitely grow again next year.
